Did the Government Entrap the 9/11 Hijackers?

We've all seen it on television. The defense attorney argues his client was "entrapped". That is, that it wasn't the defendant's idea to commit the crime, but that the police planted the idea and urged him to do it.

Many of us have heard allegations that post-9/11 arrests of suspected Al Qaeda members were based on very thin information. Did you realize that all or virtually all of these arrests occurred due to entrapment? For example:
  • The Washington Post ran a story about one alleged threat entitled "Was it a terror sting or entrapment?", showing that the U.S. government lent material support to the wanna-be terrorists, and put violent ideas in their heads
  • There are numerous other instances of entrapment of peaceful or mentally incompetent people who are then arrested as "terrorists" (see this, this and this)
But surely 9/11 was different, right?. Without doubt, the hijackers were bloodthirsty militant Muslims who, solely due to their crazy beliefs and dark hearts, decided to attack and kill Americans. Right?

Maybe. But let's take a look at the facts before deciding:
  • An Al Qaeda operative very close to one of the top Al Qaeda leaders was a CIA informant
  • The former president of Italy said that U.S. and Israeli intelligence services were behind the 9/11 attack, and that that fact is widely known by the intelligence services of all of the western nations
  • According to intelligence officials in India, Pakistan's military chief of intelligence wired $100,000 to the lead hijacker days before 9/11 (mentioned here in a news roundup). This is especially interesting because: That particular chief of intelligence was appointed to that position with the approval of the U.S., and the intelligence chief had held "consultations" with his U.S. counterparts at the CIA and the Pentagon during the week prior to September 11
Given the above-described information, and the government's history of entrapping peaceful or mentally incompetent people and placing violent ideas in their heads - and plans and resources in their hands - is it possible that any of the participants in the 9/11 attacks who were not government agents were entrapped by those who were?

Note: I am not arguing that the hijackers' names should be cleared or that they are good people who were victimized. Anyone who took a single life on 9/11 is a murderer and a scoundrel. I am, instead, simply asking who the true masterminds of 9/11 were, and who provided the resources to carry out the plan.

*The nephew was himself one of the planners of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing (which is itself interesting, since an FBI informant had infiltrated the cell responsible for that bombing and
had offered to stop the 1993 bombing of the world trade center by substituting fake powder for real bombmaking materials, but the FBI allowed the bombing to happen anyway (summary version is free; full version is pay-per-view) (see also this news report)).

Good stuff, George. Lots of hard work went into this, and it will be very useful ... not least to me; I've also been working on a number of entrapment angles.

Here are a couple of related articles you may find interesting:

You mentioned the WaPo article about Osama Eldawoody; he entrapped Matin Siraj:

Thanks again for all your good work, and best wishes.

Also, aren't some of the alleged hijackers still alive and in their home countries, quite surprised to see their own names in the headlines?

The descriptions I've read about Atta don't seem to gel with the "devout Muslim fanatic" profile but more with the "cold, psychopathic operative" profile. I have doubts about his perishing on 9/11--though I do think there were also plenty of deluded patsies, also. Maybe even a few easily manipulated "true believers", sacrificed for a cause other than the one they ostensibly believed in.

Russian intelligence, French, German and Israeli intelligence all knew something was up and urgently warned the US. Per Michael Ruppert, information was choked, blocked at key points on purpose.
Didn't take large numbers of people "in the know", just a select number of people with managerial authority in the right place at the right time.

Re: Entrapment, it would also be worth researching this angle further in the recent UK cases, from 7/7 onward.

Keep up the good work, Mr. President.

Entrapment to a limited degree, perhaps! Entrapment alone does not explain Dick Cheney's 'supervision' of 911 and the damning comments he made to Mineta. At some point 'entrapment' became ACTIVE complicity in an operation far beyond the ability of the alleged 'hijackers' to even understand, let alone pull off!

Someone, for example, planted thermite/thermate in anticipation of the attacks. Were the 19 Arabs served up by officialdom capable of doing this? Of course not! The 'hijackers' were not lured into committing a crime! They were SET UP to take the fall for a crime that Bushco et al ACTIVELY participated in.

In response to: "aren't some of the alleged hijackers still alive and in their home countries, quite surprised to see their own names in the headlines?"

Indeed, many mainstream media outlets, including the BBC and the Washington Post, reported LIVE hijackers! The government version depends upon the death of all the hijackers. Hani Hanjour, for example, could not have bailed out to give interviews, had he really piloted 77 into the Pentagon.

Further, if Hanjour or, indeed, ANY hijackers on the original list is still alive, then the so-called "original flight manifests" are FRAUDS!

Indeed, Dr. Olmstead filed a FOIA with regard to this issue:

""A list of names on a piece of paper is not evidence, but an autopsy by a pathologist, is. I undertook by FOIA request, to obtain that autopsy list and you are invited to view it below. Guess what? Still no Arabs on the list. In my opinion the monsters who planned this crime made a mistake by not including Arabic names on the original list to make the ruse seem more believable."

--Thomas R. Olmsted, M.D, Autopsy: No Arabs on Flight 77"

The Existentialist Cowboy makes the case that 'fraudulent' manifests were prepared after the fact to support the official theory. A current link to a fancy graphic showing all the hijackers in their assigned seats is an example. Clearly --if ANY hijacker still lives, then the graphic showing him seated in one of the doomed aircraft is a bloody fraud perpetrated upon the public by the government.

It was the Washington Post, in fact, that first reported that Hani Hanjour was alive.

If Hanjour is alive, the official theory is a fraud. If the official theory is a fraud, Bush et al are guilty of mass murder and there is probable cause now to begin an Grand Jury investigation.

Work for it! You have a First Amendment right to petition a Federal Judge. A Federal Judge may, upon his own motion, convene a Federal Grand Jury. A Federal Grand jury could, if it chose to do so, subpoena Bush and Cheney.
